Minnesota Waterscapes uses pond building techniques that require the least amount of stress, less than 2 hours per month to maintain. This way you only have to worry about the relaxing aspects of your water feature: cascading waterfalls, sunlight reflecting off the pond, migrating birds coming to visit, and feeding your fish.
All fish ponds & water gardens, at some time or another, need a good cleaning.
Decomposing leaves and other debris can collect on the bottom of the pond, releasing ammonia and nitrates into the water. When these levels get too high, it can be harmful to your fish, and in some cases can prove fatal. Dirty water also spoils the look of your pond. The water should be clear so that you can see right to the bottom. Your aquatic and surrounding plants need to be kept pruned to stay healthy too.
Typically a good thorough cleaning is done in Spring, and again just before Winter.
